  1. gasman added a post in a topic Amazon Prime sign Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May for exclusive new show   

    Should be good, happy they are on Amazon, no advertising from the auto makers means they can give Honest reviews. Not surprised they went with an American company. Gives Clarkson free speech to say whatever stupid thing he wants too say

    Revell C7 Corvette Snap kit
    2 years after we first saw the C7 Corvette we finally get our first kit of one. This kit comes in the new smaller boxes we saw the 15 Mustang snap kit  come in, but this kit is not as basic as that one. it comes with a multi piece interior. as well as nicely detailed headlights and taillights. there is no chrome in the kit. Revell nailed the "satin" finish wheels that the new Corvette has. The chassis is one piece. but is nicely detailed that some basic painting should make it look great.

    the Tamiya Gazoo racing TRD GT86 kit has an excellent set of modern steel wheels it, but I doubt if you would want too spend $60 on a parts kit

    Don't think anyone has mentioned it yet but I'd really like a lhd dash for the Tamiya Isuzu Vehicross

    Doesn't this kit have an inaccurate body, too short iirc

    There is a small difference in the mounts for the i6 and the v8. But any modeler should have problem changing them, just required drilling a hole in the frame.

    Everything else is a direct swap. The side trim can be easily shortened to fit the short bed. The interiors are also a direct swap

    Several sites are listing it as "in stock". So check your LHS it may be out

    I feel really lucky, I have two great hobby shops very close to me, and both are doing really well, ones been open since the 40's, and the other is in a very busy shopping center and is always full of shoppers

    We did lose a local hobby shops about a year ago, but that was because of bad management, not lack of business
